    Stewart can be genuinely funny, but Colbert?

    Sad to say, but Stewart is one of the fairest commentators out there. He's a liberal, and makes no bones about it, but I have seen countless clips bashing Obama on his show. That's why I constantly see his clips pop up on fox nation and such.

    Stewart Eviscerates Obama for Withholding Drone Memos: What Happened to

    Stewart Rips Obama SOTU:

    Jon Stewart Tears Into Obama Hypocrisy | Drones | Fox Nation

    BTW, these are only a few that I found, all of them very recent, with evey single one being from February. But of course all he does is pick on Republicans, lol.

    I think Colbert is a comedic genius and much funnier than Stewart

    The proof is in the people who don't realize he's playing a character
    He touched her over her bra and underpants, she says, and guided her hand to touch him over his underwear

    Colbert's schtick is too obvious and always got the feeling people were laughing at him because of his choice of targets and his frantic gestures rather than what the hell he was saying.

    Yes, exactly!!

    Jon Stewart performs jokes. Colbert, on the other hand, has to not only tell jokes, he has to remain in character.

    For me, the thing that really demonstrates the difference in their comedic abilities are the interviews. It's not scripted so they have to come up with funny things to say. The difference is that Stewart can say anything that's funny, while Colbert has to come up with something that is also consistent with his character

    I agree. Not much different than Rush actually. It's news based entertainment by an admittedly biased host. Still informative (if you follow up and understand that it is of course biased and adjusted for humor), they are able to bring issues to the forefront and get people to look in to it. As long as people don't accept the show as strictly news it's fine. That said I'll miss his show this summer. I don't think his fill in is nearly as entertaining.

    He has said before that Bill O is a major part of his model, yes. Asked why not Glenn Beck, he said you can't really parody something that crazy.
